For those who love the ocean, relaxation, and sunny beaches, the Cahuita National Park is a destination not to be missed. Life here goes on peacefully, between a dive over the largest coral reef of Costa Rica and a hike along the trails of the surrounding forest. The Cahuita National Park occupies a strip of land in the southern part of the country, just a few miles from the Panamanian border. The warm water and the breathtaking landscape typical of the Caribbean Sea are the real strengths of the park: you can fish, swim, pick up coconuts or simply relax under a palm tree. Hiking is another activity to consider. Many trails go deep into the forest, giving the opportunity to capture and admire howler monkeys, ibis, parrots, toucans, and many more animals that live here in peace and harmony.
